KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - After getting his weight under control, defensive tackle Kyle Love turned his attention to getting his diabetes in check. Now, he's ready to focus on playing football again.
The Chiefs signed the former Patriots lineman after a workout this week, and he could be pressed into service as early as Sunday against San Diego. Defensive tackle Mike DeVito did not practice Wednesday because of a sprained knee and might miss the game.
That could create an opportunity for Love, who's been working out at home in Atlanta and waiting for a call all season. He was released by New England when his weight ballooned, and then waived by the Jaguars before the season started.
The Chiefs released Anthony Toribio to make room for him on the roster.
